Battlefield 1 is still a great game. You might even argue that it’s still better than BF5. But what if you want to play together with friends who are on a different platform than yourself?

In other words, is Battlefield 1 cross platform in 2022?

Well, this is an easy one to answer, because unfortunately Battlefield 1 is not cross-platform.

So what about cross-progression or a battle royale mode?

Let’s explore the battlefield in more detail below.

What is Battlefield 1. – A brief introduction.

  • Game Developer: DICE
  • Game Publisher: EA
  • Genre: First-person shooter

Battlefield 1 is another entry in the popular Battlefield franchise that was developed by DICE and published by EA. This entry is the 15th installment in the franchise, and it’s a bit different from other recent entries. This is because the game takes place during World War I.

This means that players will be making use of weapons that were available during this historical time period instead of fighting using more modern firearms like most big first-person shooter games.

Story

The story of Battlefield 1 takes place during World War I. There is a full single-player campaign for you to enjoy where you’ll be able to take control of six different characters.

Each of the six characters has a unique scenario to go through, and this means that you’ll be able to stay busy for quite some time when playing solo. All of the stories have to do with World War I in some way.

Gameplay

You’ll be very familiar with the way that this game plays if you’re a fan of first-person shooters. The gameplay in Battlefield 1 is very much like most modern takes on first-person shooters. It’s a bit different because you’ll be using weapons such as bolt-action rifles at various points in the story.

The arsenal at your disposal isn’t as modern as many other shooters, but it’s interesting to be able to melee enemies with a saber, and you can even ride horses into battle. 

Aside from the single-player campaign mentioned earlier, there’s also a huge online multiplayer element to this game. There are many different games that you can play if you want to get online and play with friends or compete against people across the world through matchmaking.

Conquest mode is the standard multiplayer mode for the Battlefield franchise, but there are also team deathmatch options, as well as modes such as Domination where you’ll be battling to control points. 

You’re able to control various classes in the multiplayer mode that have access to different weapons and perks. For example, the medic class has a healing item that can revive teammates and restore health.

The assault class is the best to choose for taking care of enemy vehicles since it gives players access to explosives and anti-tank grenades.

Battlefield 1 Expansions

Since its initial release in 2016, DICE has released four DLCs for Battlefield 1:

  1. They Shall Not Pass (2016) includes the French Army, six new maps of famous battlefields, new weapons and more.
  2. In the Name of the Tsar (2017) four new maps take the players to the Eastern Front and two other scenarious take place during the Russian Civil War. You also get new weapons, and a Russian female scout unit.
  3. Turning Tides (2017) and Turning Tides: North Sea (2018) focuses on naval and amphibious warfare in four new maps. You also get the L-Class Destroyer and a range of new weapons and gadgets, plus you get back the Conquest Assault game from earlier Battlefield games.
  4. Apocalypse (2018) introduces five new maps, new guns, the new game mode “Air Assault”, new vehicles, and much more.

What platforms are Battlefield 1 available For?

Battlefield 1 is available for:

  • PC (Microsoft Windows)
  • Xbox One
  • PlayStation 4 (PS4).

Did you know that you can share your Steam games library with family and friends?

Is Battlefield 1 cross-platform between PS4 and PC?

No, unfortunately, Battlefield 1 isn’t cross-platform between PlayStation 4 and PC.

First of all, there’s the problem with PlayStation being owned by Sony, and, unfortunately, getting things to work between a Sony PlayStation, and the PC/Xbox version owned by Microsoft isn’t always an easy task.

Second, PC players would get a huge advantage because it’s much easier to aim with a mouse.

Is Battlefield 1 cross-platform between PC and Xbox?

No, unfortunately, Battlefield 1 isn’t cross-platform between Xbox and PCs running Microsoft Windows.

This is because PC players would get a huge advantage because it’s much easier to aim precisely with a keyboard and mouse.

Is Battlefield 1 cross-platform between Xbox and PS4?

No. If you own an Xbox, you can only play Battlefield 1 with other Xbox owners. And likewise, if you own a PS4, you can only play together with other PS4 owners.

This, again, comes down to the difficulties getting Sony and Microsoft to work together.

Does Battlefield 1 support cross-progression?

This is again a big no! Unfortunately, Battlefield 1 doesn’t support cross-progression play. So if you’ve leveled up your soldiers and gear on one platform, you have to start from scratch again, if you move to a new one.

Does Battlefield 1 have a Battle Royale mode?

Again no, Battlefield 1 doesn’t have a battle royale mode, although that would be freakin cool!

Conclusion

Well, I guess, I could sum up this article with just one word: NO! Battlefield 1 – although being both a multiplatform and multiplayer game – doesn’t offer cross-play, cross-progression, or battle royale. In other words, you’re out of luck, if fx you own a PC, and your friends have Xbox and/or PlayStation.
